  • Salad:
  • 1 cup orzo pasta uncooked
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 cups water or vegetable broth
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup strawberries chopped
  • 1 cup kale chopped
  • 1/3 cup red onion diced

  • Dressing:
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard

  • Combine orzo in a small pot with 1 tsp of olive oil. Stir on medium heat for 2-3 minutes until orzo is lightly toasted.

  • Once boiling, reduce the heat and let it simmer on low for about 15 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed.
  • Remove from heat, season with salt, and stir. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
  • While the orzo cooks and cools, chop the strawberries, kale, and onion. Set aside.
  • Combine all dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until completely combined.
